One could not live underthe same roof with thin dark Luis Morenas and view what magic hispencil worked, without learning somewhat of the holiness of creativework. Somehow, I rather think they wereas curious about two Yankee women as they were about those Easternwomen of whom Miss Emmeline was talking. I'm sure Hynds House wasjust as interesting to them as Mohammedan harems and Indian zenanas. Miss Emmeline really spoke well, and her audience was interested inher, in her theme, and in Hynds House.

Both her father, Richard Hoban Conway, and her mother, Helena Mary Brown, were offspring of Irish immigrants. Father Charles C. Prendergast had officiated at their marriage in 1872. At the time of the 1880 Chatham County Federal Census, five-year-old Mary had a little sister, Leonora, then two years old. A son later joined the Conway family.

The Project Gutenberg eBook, A Woman Named Smith, by Marie Conway Oemler. Chapter I. The scarlett witch departs.

by. Oemler, Marie Conway, 1879-1932. This book starts off a bit slow, but it picks up once Sophy and Alicia finish restoring the house and start making it into a sort of upscale boarding house. The first person they invite to stay is The Author, a famous literary figure who is never given a name. He falls in love with the house and doesn’t seem to want to leave. I love fictional famous people, and The Author is hugely entertaining.

If it had been humanly possible for Great Aunt Sophronisba Scarlett to lug her place in Hyndsville South Carolina along with her into the next world she would have done so and felt that heaven was almost as desirable a place as South Carolina.

A Woman Named Smith is a delightful surprise. Originally published in 1919, the main character is Sophy Smith, a businesslike thirty-something New England bred spinster. Her staid world is turned upside down when she inherits a South Carolina mansion from her eccentric great-aunt by marriage. Heading south with her best friend, confidante, and protegee, the beautiful young Alicia, she turns the mansion into a winter retreat for wealthy clients. In the process, she acquires friends and cats, solves a mystery, and finds romance. The "down sides" to the book include occasionally archaic language, and an old-fashioned view of race relations. Otherwise, it's a fun if lightweight read. Two thumbs up.

This was a moderately fun mystery/romance. At first I didn't realize it was written in the early 1900s, and was wondering why this lady was writing like my Grandmother spoke. There are some holes in the plot which require suspension of disbelief, and the romantic relationships are extremely predictable, but the book has it's positive attributes. Some of the characters are quirky and interesting and overall the author does a good job with character development.
It is a happy book, with nice interactions and relationships between people. The writing style was sometime a little pretentious I thought, but in general she wrote well without excessive use of awkward adverbs which I don't like. She writes with a nice wit that keeps a little chuckle going. Much of the story is told with dialogue which is well written, and this keeps the story moving along. It starts off slow, unless you find descriptions of antiques and old do-dahs interesting. After the first couple chapters I found it to be a relaxing, mildly interesting and pleasant no-brainer book.

Sophy and Nicholas as well as the Author play outstanding roles in this story. An ordinary yet extraordinary story at the same time.
Dordred
Good easy read. Smooth flow to story, good for light reading.

A poorly written beginning winds its way to an intriguing middle and a satisfying conclusion. A better editor might have forced the author to rework the stilted early pages--but thereafter the story needs no improvement. Quite fun!
Dogrel
This story has words that seem dated, but the story they reveal is timeless. The humor and romance are completely and thoroughly at home in any age. I think the other reviews have covered the one drawback, but no one but myself could tell you how much i enjoyed this book and how i yearned to get back to reading it.
Flamehammer
This is a romantic love story with lots of twists and turns. It's very entertaining. I have enjoyed all the books I've read by this suthor.
I never heard of this author before, but she has written a very engaging romance/mystery set in the South. If you like Lucy Maud Montgomery novels you will like this book.
